Minister for Health and Population Mohan Bahadur Basnet has said that reforms would be made in the health care sector to ensure accessible, quality and effective services to the needy ones.

At a programme organized at Narayani Hospital in Birgunj on Saturday to mark the hospital's anniversary, the Health Minister said that the key challenges of the health sector would be resolved so that the needy ones won't have to die for lack of treatment.

He shared that the government is working for the upgradation of the hospitals along with needed human resources and equipment.

On the occasion, Minister Basnet expressed commitment to ensure a conducive environment for doctors to work in an easy and a safer environment adding that the government would take stern steps to curb anarchic activities in the health sector.

"The government is serious about the misbehaviour and attacks on the doctors taking place in different parts of the country. Processes to punish the wrongdoers are forwarded by arresting them. The police are also holding investigations," the Health Minister shared.

He also asked the agitating doctors to return to their workstations, adding that the talks between the government officials and agitating doctors are reaching a conclusion soon.

Likewise, he added that kidney transplantation service would begin soon in Narayani Hospital and support from all is needed for this to materialize.

Also speaking at the event, Health Minister of Madhes Province Birendra Singh expected support from all sides to make Madhes province a 'healthy province'.

On the occasion, lawmakers Pradip Yadav, Ajay Kumar Chaurasiya, Prabhu Hajara Paswan and others expressed their views for the quality enhancement of Narayani Hospital.

Madhes Province Assembly members Janardan Singh Chhetri, Raj Kumar Gupta and others too asked to address the issue of human resource crunch as well as equipment supply in the hospital.

Likewise, Medical Superintendent of Narayani Hospital Dr Chitranjan Sah shared that the hospital is running 350 beds currently including other services.

As high as 1,200 plus patients from Nepal and India visit the hospital to receive the health care services in Narayani Hospital but limited infrastructures and human resources have created difficulties to provide the best possible services, Dr Sah said.

During the programme, Minister Basnet felicitated Mayor of Birgunj Metropolitan City Rajesh Man Singh, chairman of Birgunj chamber of commerce and industry Anil Agrawal and some others for their support in the hospital's infrastructure development.

Likewise, Minister Basnet honored senior doctors Ram Avatar Khetan, Gopal Prasad Gajurel and Radha Krishna Gyawali for providing special contributions to the health sector.
